Apple finally unveiled the new generation of its flagship TWS headphones called the second generation AirPods Pro at the Far Out event and after long rumors. The company says that the new Airpod Pro model is improved in every way compared to its previous generation, but the important question that arises for many people is the performance and comparison of the features of this product with competitors such as Huawei Free Buds Pro, Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro, Power Beats Pro, Xiaomi Buds 4 Pro and Sony WF-1000XM4 are already launched.
On the other hand, other models such as PowerBeats Pro use a special ear clip, which makes you not have to worry about it being separated from the ear when using it in sports activities. Huawei Free Buds Pro also uses the same design style as the second generation Airpod Pro; In fact, a part of this headphone is placed in the user’s ear and its buds are slightly lower than the user’s ear. On the other hand, Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro uses a different design and is completely placed inside the user’s ear, and this form factor makes us even forget that they are in our ears after using it for a while.
Using the new H2 chip, Apple’s second generation AirPods Pro now offers better sound quality than its previous generation. This product benefits from improved noise cancellation that can play audio with better clarity when making voice calls as well as listening to music, which Apple says works up to twice as well as its previous generation. On the other hand, the built-in speaker on the charging case of this product has made it possible to use the Find My function.
Of course, the flagship TWS headphones Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro, Huawei Free Buds Pro, Sony WF-1000XM4 and Beats PowerBeats Pro each have some kind of active noise canceling feature, and only after the expert review of the new Airpod Pro model, can you tell about the difference in quality in the world. Real comment.
All of the headphones mentioned above use touch controls to adjust the volume, move between songs, and answer calls, and only the PowerBeats Pro are equipped with physical volume buttons on each of its headphones.
Another point is that Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro comes with Bluetooth 5.3 standard, while Huawei Freebuds Pro and Sony WF-1000XM4 use Bluetooth 5.2 standard and PowerBeats Pro also uses Bluetooth 5. Apple has also used the Bluetooth 5.3 standard in the new generation of AirPods Pro. These headphones are all somewhat resistant to water penetration and perspiration, and therefore there is not much difference between choosing any of them in terms of waterproof capability.
The second generation Airpod Pro, like its previous model, continues to benefit from the IPX4 certificate and is therefore resistant to water penetration and sweat. On the other hand, this product can now adjust and play surround sound according to the size and shape of the user’s head, using updated drivers and the H2 chip, which we do not see in competing products. Of course, Xiaomi Buds 4 Pro also offers the possibility of 360-degree Hi-Fi sound playback by using its powerful chip.
Although Apple has improved the battery life of the second generation AirPods Pro compared to the previous generation of this product from 4.5 hours to 6 hours, it is still compared to the battery life of some competitors, including PowerBeats Pro (9 hours battery life) and Sony WF-1000XM4 (9 hours battery life). 8 hours battery) is less. Of course, the charging of wireless headphones usually depends on many factors, such as the active or inactive active noise cancellation, the quality of the music being played, and the volume can increase or decrease. In the meantime, Xiaomi Buds 4 Pro also supports fast charging technology and can be used for up to 180 minutes with just 5 minutes of charging.
Another point about comparing the second generation AirPods Pro with the competitors of this product is the support of all these headphones for wireless charging technology. Of course, Apple’s new flagship TWS cable charging method uses the Lightning port, while its competing products are all charged with the USB-C port.
Apple decided to release the second generation of AirPods Pro at a price of $249. In comparison, Galaxy Buds 2 Pro is sold with a tag of $230. Sony has launched the WF-1000XM4 flagship TWS headphones at a price of $280. On the other hand, Huawei Free Buds Pro and PowerBeats Pro are sold for $236 and $250, respectively. According to the price tags of these products, there is not much difference between them, and therefore, when choosing, you should pay attention to which features are the priority for you and buy the best option according to your needs.
